A Frame Apart
About This Show
It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?
Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

Episode 42 - The Age of Innocence VS The Lawnmower Man
3 days ago
Don't worry, you read that right. This week we're pitting Martin Scorsese's masterful adaptation of Edith Wharton's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Age of Innocence against the film Stephen King sued to have his name taken off of, Brett Leonard's The Lawnmower Man. That's right, folks, it's all about the art (or lack thereof) of adaptations! We discuss the skill with which Scorsese brings the soul of Wharton's novel to the screen, the complete lunacy that is The Lawnmower Man, as well as the notion of fidelity to source material and authorial intent.
At the top of the episode we discuss the death of Roger Moore, Zack and Deborah Snyder's tragic loss, the horrific Manchester Ariana Grande concert bombing, and, on a lighter note, Cannes' treatment of Troma, and issues with Netflix. Be sure to check out the IndieGoGo page for the Brendan Mertens production Not For Resale: A Video Game Documentary.
